Zayn debuted the look in a photo posted to Twitter, where he told fans he was "chillin". He also uploaded a new shirtless selfie as his profile photo showcasing his new 'do.
Since leaving One Direction in March, Zayn has experimented with his hair unveiling green and white locks, and even a shaven look.
Zayn is currently working on his solo debut album, something which he has promised fans will be "amazing".
He signed a record deal with RCA Records at the end of July, where he told fans: "I guess I never explained why I left. It was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who I really am! #realmusic #RCA."
Speaking about his new material, Zayn said last week: "Love you all... Always make me feel good. Gonna get this done for you!! I promise this album will be amazing."
He is currently working on new music in Los Angeles, and the 22-year-old made a solo red carpet appearance this week at the Straight Outta Compton film premiere.
At the beginning of this month, news broke that Zayn had split from his Little Mix star fiancée Perrie Edwards. The couple, who got engaged in August 2013, had been together for four years.
